Battery Energy Storage System (BESS)

Battery Energy Storage System (BESS)

Hybrid drilling for reduced operating costs and a lower environmental footprint

The Kenera Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) is a modular power management solution designed to help decarbonise your existing operational set up, optimising asset performance through a reduction in operating costs, whilst taking a sustainable approach to emissions reduction.

Designed with Expertise

The fully scalable BESS unit provides proven and proprietary technology from a company backed by more than 130 years of drilling rig and oilfield expertise to support your decarbonisation journey.

What does it do?

BESS enables rigs to run with fewer engines more efficiently, leading to reduced engine runtime, overall lower diesel consumption and ultimately performing at a lower carbon footprint.

How does it work?

The BESS uses battery modules, consisting of Battery Power Control Rooms (BPCRs) equipped with battery racks, power and auxiliary panels, main circuit breakers and a heating/ ventilation and air conditioner (HVAC) system.

A typical BESS set up will replace one diesel generator set and is a containerised system of module design typically comprising of two units to ensure built in redundancy in your operations.
